"Tweet"-ness

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a project I created for Eileen Hull's Art with Heart Project of Love Challenge. I used the Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Box Square which I cut from the Sizzix Mat Board Pack 6 Cream Sheets.  One of the box sides I cut  off the lid so it could be open. I then cover with Express Yourself Gypsy Moments Cardstock on the outside and on the inside I covered with Express Yourself Gypsy Moments Cardstock. I decorated the front with hearts that was diecut and punched along with a little bird that I fussy cut from the Conservatory Paper Pack. I finished off the front with some cute embellishments, adhered trim around the top of the box and the screw fasteners I added to the bottom of the box.


The files I cut from the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4pk with Stamps Gypsy Files but I wanted the files longer so I folder the cardstock in half and cut and I then cut papers from both the Conservatory and the Morceaux paper pads and adhered to both sides. I created pockets from the Poses and Reflections Gypsy Moments Cardstock and added embellishments along with Conservatory tags.


Backside of the file tags.


These tags are actually packaging from some 7 Gypsy product. 


The backside of the tags I didn't have to add much just a little bit of paper, Postale Paper Tape and twine.


I wasn't sure how everything was going to turn out when I started but I can honestly say I love the "tweet" little bird and hearts on the front of the box along with all the tags inside the box. :-) If you have any questions about this project or any of the products I used please let me know.

7 Gypsies-Express Yourself Gypsy Moments Cardstock, Postale Paper Tape, Conservatory 6x6 2 sided Paper Variety Pack, Conservatory Round Tags, Morceaux 6x6 Paper Variety Pack, Poses and Reflections Gypsy Moments Cardstock , Canvas Corps-Tan and Ivory French Script Cardstock

Party Time

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery blog. This month's theme is chocolate, cookies or sweets.  Well, since I have an embossing folder of cupcakes and I found this cupcake journal card which is from Crate Paper I thought this is the perfect combo. The cardbase measures 4"x5" folded and the cardstock is from Craft Smith Gradients Collection.


I added a red sequin and a red dew drop to the cupcake to finish off this card. I went simple this month because of the fact that I pinched for time and for fear of loosing electricity since we got about an inch of rain which turned to ice but so far so good I still have power. :-)


If you have any questions please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Moments

Hi everyone! I wanted to share this card I created using the Sizzix Card, Retro Camera diecut that I bought at Hobby Lobby on clearance for only $7.49. LOVE deals like this! I ran a piece of Brown on Brown Glitter Cardstock through my diecut machine. I also embossed at the fold of the card using the Tim Holtz Texture Fades Dot-Matrix embossing folder. I had decided I was going to go steampunk with this camera. So next I cut the "zipper teeth" off of a piece of zipper which I adhered to card. I cut a small piece of vellum which I inked and then glued to the inside of the card to created the view window and added two 7 Gypsies Dome Studs for the button.



I started with Sprightly Sprockets gear diecuts and before I adhered them to the top of the card I spritzed some with Tattered Angels Verdigris Glimmer Mist and let dry. I also added some Tim Holtz gears, a gold sequin and a brown dew drop.


I also used a bottle cap as part of the lens too.


I added the "moments" coin to the flash and finished off with a dew drop. Later I think I will try to create a mini album with this camera diecut. :-) If you have any questions about this card please let me know.



Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Welcome Little Star

Hi everyone!  I created this baby card for a magazine call but it wasn't selected so I thought why not share. :-) I folded a piece of mint green cardstock to create a 4"x5 1/2" card base. I added  some scraps of patterned scrapbook paper to the base.


The chipboard stars I painted in white, yellow and mint green. Let dry and then applied Mod Podge and sprinkled glitter to the each of those. The sentiment is from the Little Star set from Fancy Pants which I stamped onto a piece of patterned scrapbook paper. I finished off the card with two little pearl dew drops. Easy peasy card if I do say so myself. :-) If you have any questions please let me know.
Also I am submitting this card for the following challenge: Word Art Wednesday: Challenge #170.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Circus Love

Hi everyone! I found these scalloped cards I cut out from the Sizzix Scallop Card diecut several years ago along with a 4 1/2"x6 1/2" pad of The Great Circus Company from Paper Studio. The set of Graphic 45 Cling Le Cirque 3 rubber stamps I had purchased at a great price at Tuesday Morning (2.99). Which of course I couldn't pass up. ;-) I couldn't decide on if I wanted to do Valentine's Day theme cards or just wanted to keep them generic and finally wound up doing generic theme. So far this is what I came up with...I have a couple of more to do. :-)


I stamped and used pastel chalks to color the images and then set the chalk with hairspray. Also I printed the sentiments from the computer and I inked all the edges with brown chalk ink.


I added sequins for a little bit of fun bling to the cards. Plus it is flat and should mail easily. 
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Key to my Heart

Hi everyone! I here to share a quick rolodex I created using my Sizzix Card, Telephone and Address diecut to cut a rolodex card from one of the sheets of 6"x6" Mad Tea Party papers from the Tea Time Nesting Components Mixed Media Kits. I used scraps of patterned red cardstock to hand cut and punch hearts. I inked around the edges of the hearts and along with two strips of patterned cardstock I adhered all to the rolodex front. I printed the "daisy girl"  and then fussy cut her out. I adhered her to the corner of the card and added Stickles and a mini flower gem to the daisy.


I used the key stamp from the Paper Wings Productions Vintage Elements stamp set  and stamped on textured cream colored cardstock, fussy cut, inked over with chalk ink to give the key an old and worn look. I printed the sentiment from the computer, cut out and inked also with chalk ink. I adhered to the card along with a sequin, dew drop and red twine to the smallest heart to finish off this rolodex card.


I am submitting this project for the following challenges: Paper Wings Productions and Word Art Wednesday #169If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
